Nice image - ugly bug
its head is really like that of et
The last time I tried taking a picture of one of these things it started coming in my direction and freaked me out. I can deal with snakes, rodents, and most other bugs...but these things are scary!
Yes, that thing is ugly, but completly harmless. (as long as you don't look like possible food )
It's a so called "praying mantis", seen at a campground in Australia
... and i just thought you had really exotic fauna in the wild west!
